Bedbugs widespread throughout apartment complex. Building was partially closed until new ownership acquired property officially in August 2010. Desert Canyon Property Management (DCPM LLC), was aware of the problem during initial inspection upon interest of property and during purchase and closure of sale. DCPM denies any infestation and blames the tenants for the spread and infestation based on other residents and people outside the community visiting the residents of the community. Pest contro
l sprays 2-5 units per month with no results in resolving the problem. Numerous complaints have been filed with the ownership by tenants. Tenants were told to throw out all belongings including; bedding, beds, couches, sofas, and to wash all clothing articles to remedy the problem. Upon taking advice of the ownership and during the removal of personal effects, the ownership in no way made any effort to remove baseboards, drywall or any other means to locate and eliminate the problem. Ownership did not and will not offer any help, advice, documentation or information other than described above mentioned to residents. Residents are forced to live with the problem, told it is their fault not the ownerships, and told if they did not like it they could leave. This type of behavior by property owners is outright neglect and a respect of dignity based on income and location of the property. Not inclusive to bedbugs are rodents (rats and mice) with visible feces in vacant and occupied units as well as cockroaches.
